[PS3T Would Like to Thank Jack for this Roadmap]
|From stage 1, make it to the stage 3 bosses in Survival Mode with the Japanese ROM.||(4)|
In this mode, you only have 1 life and 0 continues. Luckily on the Japanese ROM, there are some nukes placed around the level for you to use, you can be on easy mode and you can overheal. Overhealing is when you eat an item with full health and it will continue to heal you, giving you part of another, yellow, health bar. Be sure to keep your distance and use range to your advantage, most enemies die in 1 to 2 hits but the fat pink shirted enemies die in 3. Be sure to use the hammer and slingshot when you find it, you only need to reach the end of stage 3, not beat it. To unlock the ROM, beat the game once and choose it when editing the game options.
|Easier Than Arm Wrestling|
|Defeat the Wrestler without any player dying.||(5)|
The Wrestler is the very first boss you fight. Using simple hit and run tactics will take him down easily, be sure to play on easy mode and by yourself to lessen the chance of someone dying. If you're really having trouble, play on the Japanese ROM and overheal yourself with the single apple in the tree and the food Sherri/Terri are holding right before the fight.
|Falling For Smithers|
|Playing from stage 1, fall through the deck after Smithers.||(2)|
You will get this trophy at the end of stage 2, when you beat the giant Krusty the clown head. Make sure you start from stage 1 and play up until the end of stage 2.
|It Tastes Like Burning|
|Hurt Smithers with one of his own bombs.||(2)|
Smithers is found in Stage 8, right before fighting Mr. Burns. While fighting Smithers, he'll occasionally drop a blue bomb while he is throwing his own at you. Pick these up and throw them at him.
|Play in a 4-player match with three other people.||(1)|
Locally or Online, start up a match with 4 people in the game. Use the boosting thread here if you need any partners.
|Playing from stage 1, get Bongo to appear in 4 different levels.||(5)|
Bongo is the white rabbit that appears in the hittable trees that drop food, there is a tree in Stage 1, 2, 5 and Stage 7. Hit the trees until food stops dropping from them and Bongo comes out telling you to go away.
|Battling Seizure Robots|
|Playing from stage 1, defeat the battling robot.||(2)|
The robot(s) is located in Stage 7. He is a mid level boss and is accompanied by another robot if there are multiple players. Simply defeat him to get the trophy, be sure to start from Stage 1.
|While performing a Team Attack, damage 25 enemies.||(1)|
To perform a Team Attack, stand still to another player, neither of you moving. Lisa and Bart will hold hands and run forward damaging everyone, Marge with Lisa or Bart, will pick them up then throw them, Marge with Homer will hold hands and begin rolling around damaging everyone, Homer with Lisa or Bart, will put them on his shoulders for them to attack. Doesn't need to be all at once, it's cumulative.
|Best Score Ever|
|Earn 250 points (US) or 25,000 points (Japan) in a game.||(4)|
Killing bosses,enemies, eating food and winning minigames earns you points. I co-oped with a friend and was short just a few points so if you do it by yourself I'm sure you'll get it. If not, do it on the Japanese ROM, it's much easier there.
|Release The Hounds|
|Complete the game in 30 minutes or less.||(10)|
Try and run past some of the enemies as the game will let you continue without killing them sometimes. I recommend doing this on easy by yourself as the bosses health bar is much lower and the enemy count is decreased. Here were my times at the end of each stage, I died a lot and missed some usable weapons:
|Like Taking Candy From a Baby|
|Complete the game four times, once with each character.||(5)|
Self explanatory. Bart and Marge have great range and Bart seems to be the perfect melee character, so I recommend these two to be your last two characters needed for completion. Your first playthrough should be either Homer or Lisa, they have very short range and aren't good characters, especially Lisa since she randomly catches herself on her jump rope leaving you open for attack. Your first playthrough should be just an ordinary playthrough, getting most of the trophies in one go. Your 2nd playthrough will be the speed run, 3rd will be on expert and 4th will be whenever you wish as by now this trophy should be the last thing you need. Take note that getting a GAME OVER, which means losing all of your continues then dying will NULLIFY the playthrough. Meaning that if you beat the game with that character, it won't count, at all. Play on the Japanese ROM on easy if you want, it'll work fine for the trophy.
|Complete the game on Expert difficulty in individual Quarters mode.||(7)|
Individual Quarters mode only gives you 10 credits before game over. This isn't easy as enemies are stronger and bosses are more aggressive, 4 players is wanted here. Hit and run tactics and careful use of weapons will go a long way. If you are running low on health or credit, have the other 3 players defend you until you reach health, or simply hire 3 bodyguards in the boosting thread found here. Once you get a game over, you will have to try again, plus your character won't count for this playthrough for the Like Taking Candy From a Baby trophy, so it's best to just end it there and start all over. Do it on the Japanese ROM, you can overheal and your health goes back to full at the end of each level. Use Bart or Marge, Lisa and Homer have terrible range plus Lisa seems to tie herself up in her jump rope a lot leaving you open. Some bosses have large hitboxes, such as the bowling ball and Mr. Burns, you can stand above them and you'll be able to pound on them without them attacking back.
